About COVID-19 PCR test near me

The RT-PCR test is a polymerase chain reaction type of NAAT test (or Nucleic Acid Amplification Test). It can detect RNA from the SARS-COV-2 virus that causes COVID-19.
This is different from the 15-minute rapid antigen test and the COVID-19 antibody test. Those check for antigens and antibodies against the spike protein of the virus respectively.

Other services offered: antibody tests

Aside from rapid COVID tests, we also offer antibody tests, whether you have an insurance plan or not. If you test positive, it does not mean that the virus is currently present in your body.
Instead, it means that you may have gotten infected before but your immune system was able to develop antibodies to fight it off.
To learn more about antibody tests, you can visit the Department of Health website. To get tested, contact us to schedule an appointment.

FAQ

Who should get tested for COVID-19?

You should get tested for COVID-19 if:

  • you have COVID-19 symptoms
  • you have been exposed to or been in close contact with a person who you know or suspect is infected with COVID-19
  • close contact means within six feet for 15 minutes or more
  • the COVID Alert NY app informs you that you’ve been exposed to the virus from close contact.
  • you need to be screened for workplaces, schools, or events
  • you are planning to travel or arriving from travel
  • you are advised to get tested by a healthcare professional or a public health official

How long should I wait to take a COVID-19 test after exposure to a known or suspected case?

You should not wait to take a COVID-19 test after exposure to a known or suspected case, regardless of your vaccination status. You need to get tested at least 5 days after exposure or earlier if you have COVID symptoms.

Are there any at-home tests for COVID-19?

Yes, there are at-home tests for COVID-19 that let you do the specimen collection yourself. For more accurate results from a healthcare professional, get tested at a testing center near you.

What are the different types of COVID-19 tests?

There are at-home tests for COVID-19. You can order free tests from COVIDtests.gov or from your local health department. Home COVID tests are also available in pharmacies, retail stores, and authorized online sellers.

How accurate are COVID-19 PCR tests?

COVID-19 PCR tests are accurate and are considered the gold standard for COVID testing. This type of test is more sensitive and is mostly processed by health professionals in a laboratory.

How accurate are rapid COVID-19 tests?

Rapid COVID-19 tests are accurate enough to detect the presence of the virus in symptomatic individuals. However, if it shows a negative result despite the presence of COVID-19 symptoms, an RT-PCR test is needed to confirm it.

Can the tests determine which COVID-19 variants I have antibodies to?

COVID tests cannot determine which COVID-19 variants you have antibodies to. Besides, antibodies from previous COVID infections are not likely to protect you from any type of COVID variant.

Is it recommended to take antibody tests after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine?

It is not recommended to take antibody tests after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine to test for immunity. It is also not recommended for use to assess a person’s need for vaccination or quarantine.

What type of COVID-19 PCR test do I need to travel?

If you’re planning a trip, it’s important to check with both your airline and your destination to understand what testing program they require travelers to follow. Around 72 hours prior to departure, or well before your day of travel, check again. Read up on airline notices, new regulations and entry requirements before driving to the airport to board domestic or international flights.

Can I pay for my COVID-19 PCR test for travel without insurance?

If you have no insurance, we provide our services without insurance for self-pay patients, giving you the care when you need it most.

Hands down I recommend Stat Clinic. Yesterday on Christmas Eve I received a terrifying email from my job stating someone was Covid 19 positive and others may have been exposed. Least to say my Christmas Eve was ruined and canceled. By this time all clinics were closed do to the Holiday. I was searching on line all over and came across Stat Clinic on Bartow Ave in the BX. I called and was informed that the clinic closed at 9pm. I got there around 5:30pm the receptionist said it was too late. I explained my concerns and people that I came in contact with she made the exception. I was tested and so was my immediate family members.The rapid test was was performed by physician. I have to admit it was quick. The doctor on site was empathic and informative. In less than 10 mins are results came back. Thank You Stat for your service.
